What To Consider When Choosing Patio Doors
Patio doors are the perfect way for adding natural light to your rooms, creating a sense of space and uniting your outdoor areas with your interiors in a seamless flow. Patio doors can be added to your lounge or dining room, the kitchen and to balcony and terrace areas. They are also often used as a front door in contemporary designed homes.
Whether you choose sliding, swing, bi-fold or French doors, itís important that you make the right choice to complement the style and period of your property.
Patio doors can instantly add natural light and space to your home. They can totally transform darker rooms without having to spend a fortune. You can enjoy your garden views and outdoor areas all year round while benefitting from modern features including greater energy efficiency and a higher level of security.
Swing opening and French doors need space to open properly without banging against furniture or being constricted by inner walls. Ensure that the wall space is sufficient so they can be fully opened. If space is minimal or cumbersome, sliding doors are an ideal solution. They can be easily installed without being intrusive, in whatever size of space you have.
Modern double glazed panes have excellent thermal and weatherproof properties helping to reduce energy bills. They also protect your interior flooring and furniture from UV damage. Toughened glass and modern locking systems provide a high level of security to deter intruders.
Wooden framed French doors are beautiful however they are high maintenance and prone to shrinking so will need regular coats of paint to prevent sun and moisture damage. Opt for a durable material thatís easy to look after and clean. UPVC and aluminium frames are easy to clean, require little or no maintenance and will never need repainting. For an authentic wood look, wood grain effect foil finishes have all the benefits of UPVC and aluminium while offering a wood look so realistic that itís hard to tell the difference.
